Lamborghini builds its 5,000th AventadorEnlarge Photo
Lamborghini has reached a milestone for its V-12-powered Aventador: 5,000 have been built at the Italian automaker's Sant'Agata Bolognese assembly plant.
If you're counting, that's 60,000 cylinders slid into the wedgy supercars since the first Aventador rolled off the line in February of 2011.
Final assembly of chassis number 5,000 occurred on March 22. The car is a red (Rosso Bia) Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster with a black interior and it was built for the Italian market. Lamborghini has not named its buyer. A small ceremony was held at the company's assembly plant just outside Bologna, Italy.
The Aventador launched as the 691-horsepower LP 700-4 but was upgraded to the LP 750-4 SuperVeloce boasting 740 horsepower. Roadster versions followed each of the coupes shortly thereafter.
Additionally, the Aventador has so far spawned a handful of very limited special editions: The one-off Aventador J, the Veneno (of which just three coupes and nine roadsters were built for sale) and the Centenario, which was unveiled earlier this month at the Geneva Motor Show.
We look forward to seeing what Lamborghini has planned next for the Aventador.
